"Engrossing, surprising and thoroughly readable." (Santa Montefiore)
"A beautifully written and magical novel about love, life and family." (Cathy Kelly)
What a wonderful Book! I had bought this, with some other books and somehow left till last.. What a great story, great narrator.. everything about this book is amazing.. I was so wanting it to go on and on.. You will not be disappointed if you buy this book.. Five stars from me..
"Past and Present Together"
I always enjoy listening to the narrator, they move so easily into the different characters, but I enjoy print as well.
To most books which are set in one era, Rachel Hore has a knack of using the past and the present to bring together the story.
The end I think, when Isabel had made a new lift for herself, but I enjoyed all of it, really. I have to listen to Rachel's stories as often as I can.
Yes when Isabel was bullied by Hugh's mother and hostiled for not being able to look after her baby.
Can't wait until the next book is released
